The boundary of the body does not end at the skin.” Discuss the quotation above in relation to an object located at your contemplative field site. Your paper should be organized as follows: 1/ Explain what Tilley means in this quotation (1-2 pages) 2/ Next, practice the mindfulness method of your choice to have a “direct experience” of the object. The goal is to be present with the object. 3/ Use the materiality checklist in the week 8 module to generate your data. As you collect data, be mindful of maintaining a direct experience with the object. Be mindful of your breathing and your body. 4/ Following the writing in part 1, using the data in part 3, write an analysis of how the body engages and is engaged by the object.
